Pelican Bride by Beth White

I haven't read anything by this author before, but thoroughly enjoyed this book.   I am from Alabama and have traveled to the Gulf Coast, but haven't really thought about the first people to live here or those who traveled here and enjoyed learning some history along with a great story.
Geneviève Gaillain  along with her sister and several other French women have traveled to the Gulf Coast/Mobile area to become brides.  They have had to leave their homes for several reasons including religion.  Genevieve winds up marrying one of the men from the area, but not necessarily the one that the fort commander would have chosen for her.
I learned about the interactions between the natives and the new arrivals and how they often worked together, but had problems as well.  I look forward to the next book.

I received this book free for review.
